I have a hard time with making (snake) ropes with my hands. I do have this clay gun http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_1990000000206877P?vName=For+the+Home&sName=Craft+Supplies&cName=Crafts&srccode=cii_10043468&cpncode=21-106221161-2&i_cntr=1302456547812&sid=KDx20090423x00001 but it doesn't work and you need Superman powers to push fondant through, not to mention it only holds a tiny amount of fondant.
So I am looking for a more user friendly clay gun and would love suggestions!

If you mix a bit of shortening with the fondant it will be easier to push through the extruder...I have a small one and it's okay for small job but eventually I would like a larger one.

This is the one I have & it's really easy to use. It's not hard on the hands & it give you more disks than the silver on you are looking at. I ordered my online, however, afterwards I found the local craft store sell them as well.

I have the makinclay gun mentined above, it works well and is easy to use.
When purchased at Michaels with a coupon it's very affordable, approx $13.00.

thanks ladies! I have added shortening to fondant and the small one just isn't for me. I would like something a little bigger and something ith less strength needed.
